The Artists

Fred Lewin (France)

Fred, with his funny character and powerful voice is a veteran in the international gospel scene, singing his message for 20 years now.

This unconventional son of an English Pastor, transformed the prejudices and classical image that you may have of the gospel genre: his compositions will make you sing, dance and jump of your seat.

He conducts the Good News Gospel Choir in and the Alleluia Singers in Southern France, he travels around Europe with his voice technique and gospel Masterclasses, and also presenting his personal project, FredL Gospel.

His musical quality is comparable to his goodness, always involved in charity causes bringing a message of hope to those who need it the most.

In his workshops and through his music, he communicates positivity, happiness, euphoria, and also releases his sorrows. He definitely is a balm for the soul.

Ray Sidney (USA)

Ray Sidney at the Gospel Weekend

Ray has been singing in the church since he was five years old. His passion and life’s mission is to sing for the Lord and to share that Gospel Good News with others. Ray is living his mission. Ray is referred to as a “Musicianary” (don’t look it up in the dictionary).

For several years now, Ray has shared his gifts beyond the four walls of the church, performing in multiple professional gospel groups that have performed all over America in venues like BB Kings’ Blues Club and the House of Blues starring Kirk Franklin’s Gospel Brunch Show in Los Angeles (California).

In recent years, God has called him to take his music ministry to other countries. He has spread the Good News to Japan, South Korea, Philippines, Israel, Sweden, Finland, Singapore, Hong Kong, Uganda, UK and Spain.

Ray’s vocal gifts are obvious. It’s his heart for ministry and his unique ability to touch people of all colors, races and creeds that make him extra special. His humble and faithful approach has taken him from the Los Angeles concert stage to the Philippine Orphanages. From the House of Blues in Hollywood, to the villages of Uganda. Ray’s devotion to God knows no boundaries. He loves the Lord and he loves to sing. He doesn’t sing for his love of singing, he sings for his Love of the Lord. That is the reason why he sings!

Karol Green (South Africa)

With great director skills, she conducts Barcelona Soul Choir, Cor Gospel Sant Celoni, The Gospel Jam Quartet and Gospelians of Girona, the last group known by the TV3 show contest “Oh Happy Day”. 

 

She is a South African woman hwo lives in Catalonia since the age of twelve. She began her musical career at the age of seventeen as a member of a gospel choir, where she began acting as a soloist and assumed the choreographer’s tasks. Like a sponge she integrated knowledge in vocal technique, rhythm and body expression. Her lifelong school has been the large number of musical projects she has been involved in during her twenty years in Barcelona. 

There are various projects and trends that include body percussion, soul, world music, gospel and African music. One of the most outstanging is her project Gaia, where she uses the technique of looping.
